That would be a huge waste of man power. They were checking certain cars & others letting through. It appeared that they were looking for someone or something....

"Boss, we hired too many troopers and they don't have enough to do!"

"Well, let's have them perform random checkpoints on the thruway."

"Won't the travelers get freaked out?"

"Just say that we have a "anonymous tip" about an enormous shipment of narcotics. They never question us after that."

"Good idea boss! That should keep hundreds of hirees occupied"

Yeah, she had too much integrity, and too clean a background check. That might interfere with their self serving, agenda.

We were better off before the days of exorbitant pay. People were genuinely, wanting, to perform public service. Now, it's all about money and the opportunity to exercise (abuse) their authority.

People have no longer respect them, because of the way they conduct themselves, plus the fact they are "above the law" and never receive the same punishment as a civilian does for equally bad behavior. To add insult, they openly flaunt it, and possess a sense of entitlement to it.

Protection? The only protection I need, is FROM a bunch of fat, out shape, uniformed, arrogant a-holes with a gun, and without a full sense of right and wrong.
Yeah Right

If they knew what they were looking for, why didn't they just wait for that car with those occupants,instead of harassing everyone else? Boulderdash!

You sound like a huge cry baby. Must be the are where you live. I have found that when you show someone respect, you usually get it back. I imagine some LEOs do get jaded after dealing with citizens like you for long enough.

They know what people tell them. And less and less no days because unless it's something huge who wants to be "!!!Suspected!!!! and nosed around in your life? The best life is always staying clean and above all the drugs bs and scams so when they start sticking their noses in your face you can say hot the road nothing to see here we tried it the nice way for years and all that ever got was people getting wise. Fqqqm and all that drug war bs the more people that eat eachothers heads off the less to feed. I don't even CARE what that's bout it just sound great!
